The workspace of the Hansen House’s kitchen is under the loft while the rest of the kitchen is open to above and out to the great room and dining area. The open ceiling allows the natural light to flow in through the windows above and all around. The flooring is ungauged slate. The slate provides a natural earthy coloring and interesting cleft textures to the floor. The back splash matches the slate on the flooring. Shawn Hollenshead Cabinetry beautifully constructed the kitchen cabinetry as well was other elements throughout the Hansen House. The flat panel Shaker doors were made out of soft maple with Sherwin Williams traditional Cherry stain with a sating sheen topcoat. All of the doors and drawers are soft close and many have custom elements that were beautifully orchestrated by Shawn Hollenshead Cabinetry. The elegant countertops are made from Uba Tuba granite. One of the unique features of the kitchen is the window seat with a built-in storage area. The window seat is part of the seating area of the kitchen that has magnificent views of the gorgeous grounds. These views extend throughout the great room, loft, master suite and guest rooms. The kitchen opens up to the dining area and the great room.
